Hike #7 brings us into one of my favorite areas of the trail maintained by the Suncoast Chapter - the Citrus Tract of the Withlachoochee State Forest. Hills, sinks, limestone caves, hammocks and pine forests. This area is home to all manner of wildlife including deer, quail and a dense population of pileated woodpeckers.
We will meet at Mutual Mine and shuttle to the short hike take out at Holder Mine and Whispering Pines Park to begin our hike. 5.5 miles to Holder Mine, 13 to miles Mutual Mine.
